Description

General purpose, light to medium duty. An economical, maintenance free coupling, used in a variety of applications.

Stainless steel version of the “WA(C)“ series, with higher torque capacity and torsional stiffness. Increased fatigue resistance with all metric dimensions and fasteners.

Low inertia, high performance, aluminum coupling, using Helical double start technology. Torsionally stiffer and higher torque capacity than the “A“ series. Lighter with lower inertia than the “H” series.

A general purpose aluminum coupling, used where more parallel misalign- ment is required. Has a large range of shaft sizes, with optional keyways.

Stainless steel version of “MCA(C)” series, with higher torque capacity and torsional stiffness. Increased fatigue resistance.

General purpose, light to medium duty. An economical, maintenance free coupling, used in a variety of applications.

Stainless steel version of “A” series, with higher torque capacity and torsional stiffness. Increased fatigue resistance.

Typical Applications

Used for encoder/ resolver applications, low torque pump, lead screw and various other applications.

For situations requiring a heavy duty coupling such as pumps, lead screws, and positioning systems; also for process equipment in industrial situations. Anywhere a rugged, tough, long-lasting coupling is needed.

For high speed motion control systems, where fast response time is important. E.g., lead and ball screws, encoders/ resolvers, and anywhere high torsional stiffness is required.

Good for encoder/resolver applications, moderate torque pump, lead screw, and various other applications.

Good for pump, conveyor systems, and industrial processing equipment, where absolute reliability is required. Anywhere a rugged, tough, long-lasting coupling is needed.

Used for encoder/resolver applications, low torque pump, lead screw and various other applications.

For situations requiring a heavy duty coupling, for pump, lead screws, and positioning systems. Also for process equipment in industrial situations. Anywhere a rugged, tough, long-lasting coupling is needed.
